Time & Style factory
TIME & STYLE FACTORY creates furniture that is marked by a plain and simple design without unnecessary decoration. When creating original products with a simple design, we strive to breathe spirit and bring solid value to each piece of furniture. Amid the evolving manufacturing techniques and machinery, while there is no great distinction among manufacturing techniques around the world, we have looked for the essential significance of manufacturing furniture domestically.
In 2008, TIME & STYLE set up a factory in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, where our exclusive furniture upholsterers carefully make furniture piece by piece with love and affection. Our production system, which has the flexibility to cope with small lot production, embraces a build-to-order manufacturing system to make products only as needed for each order, allowing us to produce a wide variety of products in small quantities, as well as to realize detailed size settings and rich color variations, without carrying a vast inventory of products due to mass production aimed at cost reduction.
Regardless of areas, as we value the attitude of love for products as an important aspect of the production system that matches these diversifying market needs and the ways of the coming society, we believe it is possible to give a soul to each process from production to delivery by linking together design, manufacturing, sales, and after-sales service to influence each other through trial and error from each ground. Such flow of manufacturing enhances product quality and potential and injects the energy of sales and customers into the manufacturing site, creating an organic flow of vigorous overall activity. In addition, besides our original furniture collection, we excel at producing custom-made furniture and home fixtures by making use of our originality combining an excellent balance of design quality and functionality, thanks to our unique environment providing a coherent system from material selection, fabrication, and painting to finishing.
TIME & STYLE is striving to realize the high quality “made in Japan” manufacturing by accumulating know-how and practical accomplishments of in-house production.
TIME & STYLE creates furniture marked by plain and simple design without unnecessary decorations. When creating original products with simple design, we strive to breathe spirit into furniture and manufacture them in a careful manner. We also strive not only to inherit the dexterous workability and delicate finishing of Japanese people, but also to pass down the techniques and traditions that have been continuously inherited across the country, so that we can produce new products that are upgraded with modern language. Amid the evolving manufacturing techniques and machinery, while there is no great distinction among manufacturing techniques around the world, we have looked for the essential significance of manufacturing furniture domestically.
As TIME & STYLE considers “Made in Japan” as the important element to express the quality of Japanese products, it also represents not only the quality, such as the product durability, but also the overall product quality from the product design, functionalities, accuracy of the end result, and product style to after-sales services.
The process of creating products requires various types of procedures, and we cannot provide products that maintain a high level of customer satisfaction without product ideas and design, design that realizes functionalities, factory, craftsmanship, and an environment in which products are realized according to design drawings, as well as the combined effort and cooperation, such as the services provided by sales associates showing finished products to customers, services provided by delivery persons delivering products to customers, and customer services offering after-sales services including maintenance and repair work.
Against such a background, in the flow of design, production, sales, and after-sales services, by solving problems mutually from the respective positions and overcoming problems and challenges, it is important to continuously influence design, production, and sales each other and value the attitude of the heart for products regardless of sales and design because we believe it becomes possible to give soul to each process from production to sales.
TIME & STYLE sets up the large circle of design, production, sales, and after-sales services as the overall operation design and conducts production from such a standpoint. For that reason, it becomes possible to deliver new and existing products that incorporate feedback and improvements from various departments in keeping with reports and comments received from sales and designers.
